… where should I look? I don’t want to sink a whole lot of effort into it, but I’ve been jonesing for one since they were announced, I’ve got the some cash available, and I’d love to have part Emma and my “Daddy Daughter Weekend Extravaganza” be learning how to play around with Wii Sports or something. She’s three and a half, and isn’t quite coordinated enough for normal game controllers, but I think she’d take to the Wiimote really quickly. Oh, who am I kidding. I just want one!
I follow the gaming blogs, and the “still looking for a Wii” thread in the game forum at Ars, and I know that they’re pretty much not available anywhere, except in bits and spurts. I don’t want to get up super early, go to tons of stores, wait in lines, or pay more than retail. Basically, I’m willing to look a couple of places, and if I don’t find one, no big deal.
So my question is, what couple places should I look in the west Portland/Beaverton area to have the best chance of tracking one down? We have the usual stores – Target, Best Buy, etc. I actually had really good luck getting a PSP at Fred Meyer when they were out of stock everywhere, so I might try there first.
Any suggestions? I dreamed last night that I found one at some store, and snagged it right up before someone else did. The geek lust is high with this one…
